The Ex-Sailor's Gripe

When I left the navy, I was overwrought and confused by all the changes that had happened in the civilian world. You might say it was a bit of a culture shock. No one cared much for a navy man’s antics in the wider scheme of things. Mostly it was the drinking-while- submerged bits. They couldn’t understand why I’d want to roll up my car windows, drive into a lake, and try to get drunk before too much water came in to ruin things. But what you gonna do? LIve your life? Be yourself? Or walk on dry land??

They really ought to thank me, I mean the car companies. The way I test them for leaks, I outta charge them money for it. Kinda like free R&D.
